Good eye, Iron City it is! I was pretty impressed with this place. They do a lot with a small space.
Is that new LuLaRoe I see in some of these photos?
Yes! You'll probably see more on our next trip!
I absolutely LOVED your thoughts on Tiana's Place. Honestly, that's the whole reason I changed from the Dream to the Wonder. But I do wonder what my husband is going to do. His favorite desserts involve bread pudding, beignets, and banana foster. I guess we're going to get all 3 and I'll be stuck eating what he can't finish LOL. I've got a little over a year wait left and I'm so excited. I'm just anxiously waiting for WDW to open up 2018 reservations so I can get the DCL transportation confirmed and start getting the rest of my numbers. I'm trying to convince the husband to rent DVC points for the 4 nights we're going to be there but will probably stay at AoA or Pop if I can't convince him. Hard to plan when you don't know package rates or cost of airline tickets though.
Tiana's Place is my absolute favorite MDR. The theming, the food, the entertainment were all amazing! The ravioli dish was one of the vegetarian options. I think it was mainly artichoke, but can't remember. It was excellent. If we are ever back on the Wonder, I would order it again. The beignets were so good! I saw someone order them in Triton's on our last night. I wish I would have thought of that.
One of the things I really liked about Tiana's was the style of food. It reminded me of Southern-style food (born and raised in Georgia). There was just something special about being there and feeling like I was at home.
I should NOT have read this during lunch... my PB&J just isn't doing it for me now...
Tiana's Place looks amazing!
You probably wouldn't be able to get me out of the Crown & Fin...great pictures
We made our way aft to an observation deck. If there was one place where The Wonder was less than The Dream it was right here. What you see here is Palo from the outside. Which means while folks are enjoying their fabulous upcharge meal they potentially have to looks at the back ends of folks in their bathing suits! No thank you.
This is how I feel at Yachtsman Steakhouse! Sipping fine wine looking at a hairy guy with his wet suit . Not that I look amazing in a bathing suit, but I don't strut around at least lol
Great trip report so far! A Disney cruise is on my (ever growing) list of things to experience. My boyfriend and I have been to WDW twice over the past 18 months and he has told me that our next trip needs to be a relaxing one (and I agree with him on this). I'm trying to convince him that DCL is exactly that but with Disney magic, he hasn't bought it yet so I'm still working on it.
I can't wait to hear more about your cruise!
You should have him read one of our trips reports! Maybe that will nudge him in the right direction.
It was hard for me to leave. Between the beer, food, games, tvs, and some super comfy chairs the place is awesome and the themeing is just the cherry on top!
That's a very good idea
They actually ARE on the Shop Parks app because I just looked!
THE FOOD. THE BEER. THE BATHROOM.
CAN I JUST LIVE YOUR LIFE?
I will get to Trader Sam's one day! Boo to you hour and a half wait in November! Living vicariously through your visit!
Are you sure the change in pancake sizes isn't just that forced perspective thing? Maybe the pancakes are the same size but the plate is bigger? Maybe you grew a lot since the last trip so they just seem smaller? Can't possibly be they are charging more $ for less pancake...
Mind blow, amiright!!!
Did you get eaten by the sea animals?
Ha! no....I will now hang my head in shame .... Life just got very ridiculous, but in a real good way! I will get back on this today!! Thanks for the push .
Soooooo, where did we leave off… Oh yeah, we had a great night at Tiana’s and some adult lounge games before hitting the bed. We opted to head down to Cabanas and do breakfast and exit with the CC 5k runners. As was the theme for this trip, the weather was beautiful!
Like I said, we just joined in the running crowd and exited the boat with them.
We decided to make camp at the family beach, which was surprisingly uncrowded! We looked around a bit before making our way into the water.
Still to come: So many animals, some shipwreck bits, and more exploring.
